Larry Finkelstein -Organizational vs Employee Loyalty

Spread the love

I sometimes hear complaints from employers that they don’t think their employees are very loyal and I am always hearing from job seekers that they have not and do not expect loyalty from employers. A lot of truth on both sides but neither is totally correct, since I see both sides of the situation and see great loyalty from some employers and employees. Still…

People need to take control over their own careers as much as possible. The sense of real community and commitment that many organizations use to express is over. Gone are the long-term commitments, significant benefits and extensive training that once exited (there are always exceptions).

The idea that you will stay with an organization for a long period is increasingly rare. To take care of yourself you need to:

  • Find situations where you are a good match
  • Keep your skills up-to-date
  • Keep track of your accomplishments
  • Keep your resume up-to-date
  • Constantly network
  • Be flexible
  • Be open to new possibilities
